Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Liverpool In The Premier League

Tottenham will welcome Liverpool to the Wembley stadium for a mouth-watering Premier League clash on Sunday. Spurs have not suffered a defeat across all competitions since the end of August, and will be keen on maintaining that record, especially after restricting Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.

With Harry Kane in lethal form, Spurs are likely to punish a wasteful Liverpool defence. Tottenham will certainly not abandon their aggressive approach against the Reds, and it will be interesting to see how these two teams fare against each other.

Team News

There are doubts over Ben Davies, who continues to recover from illness, which could mean Danny Rose coming in to reclaim his spot. The left-back did feature for a few minutes against Real Madrid and he could be back in the squad on Sunday.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is doubtful after suffering a concussion against Bournemouth, while Mousa Dembele is expected to face a late fitness test. The midfielder should feature, however. Erik Lamela and Victor Wanyama will sit this one out but both are expected to be back soon.

Here’s how Tottenham might line up against Liverpool:

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris has been the backbone behind a resilient Tottenham defence ever since the season began and he should be in top form for Spurs against Liverpool.

Hugo Lloris

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier has been solid for Spurs and should assume the right-back role against the Reds.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The centre-back should take up his usual role and he will be tasked with keeping the Liverpool attackers at bay.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez may not have had the best of starts but he has shown promising signs of improvement. He should partner Alderweireld at the heart of Spurs’ defence.

Jan Vertonghen (LB)

The defender is likely to put up fort in the left-back area since Ben Davies is unavailable. Pochettino is likely to wait for a little more time before starting Danny Rose.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier (DM)

Much of Spurs’ good fortune has been because of Dier and the player will have to battle the likes of Emre Can to establish control in the midfield.

Harry Winks (CM)

With Dembele facing a late fitness test to start, expect Pochettino to stick with the remarkable Harry Winks in central midfield.

Christian Eriksen (RW)

The player has been crucial at orchestrating attacks for Spurs and should be keen on taking full advantage of a leaky Liverpool defence.

Dele Alli (CAM)

Alli continues to be a key figure for Spurs and has been doing quite well playing behind Harry Kane. Should start this crucial fixture.

Harry Kane

Son Heung-min (LW)

Son is likely to be deployed in the left-wing area and this will be an important match for him to show his impact.

Harry Kane (ST)

The man of the hour, Harry Kane will take up his usual duties in leading the line for Spurs and is expected to get his name once or twice on the score sheet.
